Beasts of No Nation Trailer

"All of you that have never been listened to before… you now have something that stands for you!" Netflix has debuted one final trailer for Cary Fukunaga's masterpiece Beasts of No Nation, a helluva film that is going to make a mark when it hits theaters this weekend. I love this film (read my review from the Telluride Film Festival), it's phenomenally well-made and features incredible performances, and a brutal but honest story that we don't often hear about. I recently interviewed Fukunaga and talked at length about the film (stay tuned for that) but in the meantime, this is a great trailer if you're still not convinced. And when you do see this, go to the theaters - it's worth it for the sound design alone. Abraham Attah & Idris Elba star.

Here's the final official trailer for Cary Fukunaga's Beasts of No Nation, direct from Netflix's YouTube:

Beasts of No Nation

The video above is a short Q&A with the cast & director of Beasts of No Nation from the London Film Fest.

Adapted from Uzodinma Iweala's novel, the story follows "Agu, a young boy in an unnamed West African nation, is recruited into a unit of guerrilla fighters as civil war engulfs his country. Haunted by his father's own death at the hands of militants, Agu is vulnerable to the dangerous yet paternal nature of his new commander. While the war rages on, Agu becomes increasingly divorced from the life he had known before the conflict started—a life of school friends, church services, and time with his family still intact." Beasts of No Nation is written & directed by filmmaker Cary Fukunaga, who has made quite an impact directing Sin Nombre, Jane Eyre and "True Detective". Netflix will release Beasts of No Nation starting October 16th.

Ah man. This is going to be so good. It was such a GET for Netflix to premiere this. The hands of a charismatic leader can do great and powerful things to the mind of a young person.

Don't know if I'll be able to see it in theaters here in Canada. Hard to find out.

Sorry this movie i will download...

Please, if anything, watch it on Netflix because it's easily available there for very very cheap.

Not everyone has access to Netflix. Unfortunately. But I do support your reasoning. Especially, when it's about movies like this one ...

Alex if i was in the circumstances to afford Netflix i would. But i am in the army of the unemployed but willing to work. But it's so damn hard to find a job at my age and my education. Thousands of them in my city!

I will literally Paypal you the $8 monthly fee for Netflix digital access just so you can watch this film properly and not pirate it.

Alex Billington on Oct 14, 2015


Nice offer Alex, but i must decline. You are a good guy, but i will overcome my situation and take Netflix. By this i will not download it, onley when it's already a long time outhere.

Ari, be strong. I hope and wish you to find yourself a job soon. I used to be unemployed and can imagine how bad this can be ...

Africa, while not entirely, but mostly, is a shattered world. A lot of unjust things happen there. A lot of ugly heritage left by colonialists and a lot of bad choices. I want to be convinced that someday, things will get better... Good acting choice for Idris Elba, though ...

You're basing this sentiment on what exactly?

9jah on Oct 15, 2015


The colonial history of African continent and all that happened afterwards. Maybe you heard of it. If not, well, you have no idea of what I'm talking about ...

Here Netflix, have an Oscar.

Not playing in my area. I hoped that at least the Manor theater in Pittsburgh would have it .

Edward Curtis on Oct 14, 2015


I've seen this film already, while it's pretty good, but it's not the most memorable as other films with the same similar theme. It would be an injustice to see this without seeing "Johnny Maddog", which is so brutal and relentless it'll leave scars after you've watched it, and also the "War Witch", which also will stay with you after you've watched it.
